JOIN OUR 'MANAGED BY BOTS' CAMPAIGN!
A joint campaign by Privacy International (PI), Worker Info Exchange (WIE) and the App Drivers and Couriers Union (ADCU).
It's not only delivery drivers and warehouse workers who are managed by bots. Increasingly, employers across many sectors are outsourcing their managerial responsibilities to sophisticated and opaque 'productivity' tech. In the future, further advances in this tech will mean more and more worker surveillance, our jobs increasingly directed by notifications, beeps, timers and productivity charts.
Part of the problem is that employers can hide behind the decisions these opaque systems make. "The system flagged you so you must have done something wrong"; "I don't know how the algorithm decided that, but the algorithm knows best" etc
This isn't the future we want to see. For workers to keep their dignity and autonomy, employers must always remain accountable for decisions they make about their workers.
Add your voice to our campaign by signing the petition letter we'll be sending to Uber, Deliveroo, Bolt, Amazon Flex, Just Eat, Free Now, and Ola.* Because what these companies do today could play an important role in shaping the future of work for all of us.
Let's stand together and make sure no one is subjected to dehumanising management by bot.
